Turn back the hands of time as you browse through the labyrinth of antiques, vintage paraphernalia, memorabilia and collectables that are on display at The New Junk Shop in Stanford. If vintage toys, early car registration plates, old gramophone players, silver pocket watches, wingback chairs and the thought of interesting art pieces tickle your fancy, then you are in for a treat. Every collectable imaginable and more can be found under one roof, and there are precious trinkets as well as interesting bits and bobs that form the blueprint of many generations gone by. Dinky cars, postcards from the 1950’s, toby jugs, murano glass, cloisonné, brass fittings, medals of honour, classic furniture pieces and astonishing scarcities such as an authentic gentleman's carriage, all share equal pride of place. The New Junk Shop is also the offset point where you can sell all your old gems. Ahhh, if only antiques could talk…

Erwin Esterhuizen is a legend in the used goods and collectables trade. A visit to The New Junk Shop is as much about extracting a twinkling smile out of this pleasingly eccentric gentleman as discovering the treasure itself.
Erwin has a deep passion for all things interesting, rare and collectable and has spent most of his life dealing in other people's things and can recite from heart, the history behind each and every precious item in his store. His first shop was in Diep River in the Southern Suburbs and was aptly named Yesterday's Bygones and Junk Store. What followed was years of buying, selling and trading in other peoples pre-loved or unwanted collectables. He gained notoriety with Jintys Junk Shop in Long Street, Cape Towns. The shop was undoubtedly an institution in the antique and collectable world, and this former Mother City landmark is still spoken about by collectors to this day. Erwin continues to deliver the same eclectic trove of treasures to entry-level treasure hunters, serious collectors and fellow antique dealers who find themselves in The New Junk Shop.
